Special Issue Information
New information and knowledge are important aspects of innovation in modern farming systems. There is currently an abundance of digital and data-driven solutions that can potentially transform our food systems. At a time when the general public has concerns about how food is produced and the impact of farm production systems on the environment, strategies to increase public acceptance and the sustainability of food production are required more than ever. New tools and technology can provide timely insights into aspects such as nutrient profiles, tracking of animal or plant wellbeing, and land use options to enhance inputs and outputs associated with the farm business. Such solutions have the ultimate aim to enhance efficiencies of production and contribute to the process of learning about the advantages of the innovation, while ensuring more sustainable food supplies. At the farm level, any new information needs to be in a useful format and beneficial for management and farm decision making. We welcome papers to this Special Issue on studies investigating agri-business innovation that can enhance farm-level decision making.
Prof. Dr. Matt J. Bell
